I purchased the product as the price was within my budget and the few reviews seemed to tell me that it was an ok product that would do what i required.
The camera is easy to set up, just load the disc and follow the instructions.
If your thinking of purchasing this product, there are a couple of things you should know.
1. The remote camera has a power cable, the power cable has to plug directly into the wall socket, due to the fact it has a built in surge protector! (The instructions say this i did not test it myself).
2. The reciever that plugs into the computer USB socket also requires power direct from a wall socket.
3. To enable the camera to work/record your pc/laptop must be on and running, not in sleep mode!
Having said that, i find that it works well and records a reasonable image considering the camera is pointing at my front door and the light is behind the subject being recored and not on it. It`s easy to view the recorded video as it`s stored in a calendar with the current day or selected day displayed in a (24) hours in bar form 00.00 to 23.59 with highlighted times when video was recorded, so just click slighlty to the left of a highlight then click the play button, the video will play. The motion sensor seems to work perfectly well too.
Please also note that the camera has a red light on the front that flashes when recording, and some green lights down the back or side.
